TransCanada’s Coastal GasLink is currently conducting field work south of Houston.

According to Shela Shapiro, Coastal GasLink’s spokesperson, this works helps Coastal GasLink identify the types and quantity of rocks for construction planning purposes.

“The work includes surveying and some sampling of rock,” she explained. “We’re pleased to have local Aboriginal groups participating in the work.”

The work is expected to be completed at the end of September 2016.

Coastal GasLink proposes the construction of a natural gas pipeline from near Dawson Creek to near Kitimat, passing south of Houston. The pipeline proponent estimates that 2000 to 2500 jobs would be created during construction, and 16 to 35 permanent positions would be needed during operation.

The construction date of the project is currently uncertain since LNG Canada’s joint venture participants – Shell, PetroChina, Mitsubishi Corporation and Kogas – have decided to delay a final investment decision that was planned for the end of 2016.
